Dame Helen Mirren poses topless



Get your low down on what's happening in the world of Hollywood, right here!

Legendary actress Dame Helen Mirren has posed topless in the Juergen Teller shoot to publicise her latest role as a brothel madam in her upcoming movie Love Ranch.

'I'm still the good girl who wants to be a bad girl,' the Telegraph quoted her as telling New York magazine.

'But I'll never make it as a bad girl... I'm not a prude or a moralist and I never have been, but I'm too fearful, too much of a wimp, really,' she added.

Appearing in the notorious 1979 film Caligula, Dame Helen admitted that she learnt to use her sexuality to her advantage early in her career.

'A lot of it is plain, old-fashioned practicality. I wanted to work. When I did Caligula, for example, I hadn't really done movies,' she explained.

'But I was kind of a trailblazer because I demanded to do it my own way. I'd say, ''I'm not having it put on me by someone else''. I didn't want to be the sort of puritanical good girl with a little white collar who says, ''Don't -- until you get married''.'

Pirates of the Caribbean 4 script found in cafe

Prev     Next


The script for the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie was surprisingly found in a greasy spoon cafe.

A Sun reader found the 194-page screenplay in the Central London cafe after movie chiefs stopped for a fry-up.

The reader passed the script to the newspaper and then it was returned to Walt Disney Pictures.

The shooting of fourth film has started in Hawaii on the 2-billion-pound franchise, which sees Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow in search of the Fountain of Youth.

The much-awaited movie, subtitled On Stranger Tides, is due to be released next May.

'I'm a big fan of the films, but I managed to resist the urge to have a read. I want to enjoy the movie when it comes out,' The Sun quoted the reader as saying.

A Disney spokesman said, 'It's good to know that Sun readers are honourable citizens.'

Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr and her Hollywood beau Orlando Bloom are all set to exchange marital vows in Gunnedah.

Bloom's publicist has confirmed the news that Kerr and Bloom are engaged.

'They are engaged,' quoted Bloom's rep as telling the New York Daily News.

Kerr, 27, first met Bloom backstage at a Victoria's Secret lingerie fashion show in New York in 2006 and began dating in late 2007.

The couple have said little publicly about their relationship, with the supermodel in 2008 admitting to People magazine that Bloom was "a sweetheart and that's all I'm going to say."
